A campaign against Canine Killer [name deleted] has just kicked off on the Wayne State University campus where a protest is in progress at the Gullen Mall.
The Canine Killer is a “researcher” who buys dogs that have been rescued by pounds through Class B dealers and proceeds to mercilessly torture them to death. We are currently working on getting the Wayne County District Attorney to file criminal animal abuse charges against him.
In October, this vivisecting parasite had the courts issue him a Personal Protection Order against Camille Marino to compel her to remove his information from the NIO website and thereby surrender her First Amendment Rights. Marino was vocal in her disgust for him and, apparently, the judge in the case — who happens to be a Wayne State alum (!) — conspired with the Canine Killer to silence her. In conjunction with the PPO, Wayne State banned Camille from campus.
Please note that until they had her arrested at a University of Florida protest on February 4, jailed for a month, and extradited to Detroit in early March, she had never set foot in the state of Michigan. She has since been out on bond awaiting trial on June 18 where she will challenge three counts of criminal contempt. Her attorneys, Matt Savich and Michael Cafferty, will argue that the PPO was issued in violation of Marino’s First Amendment rights because her speech in question is Constitutionally-protected.
For Queenie (and the hundreds of other dogs tortured and betrayed by Wayne State University)
In conjunction with our protest, Camille made a surprise appearance on the WS campus today and locked herself down to a building in bold violation of her bond and in active defiance of the Wayne State ban and the PPO. [vivisector's name deleted] has afforded her a degree of media attention and we all intend to fully exploit it and direct it squarely back at his blood-soaked visage and sociopathic “science.” Abusers fear exposure and we are all more than happy to provide it.
In a statement issued moments ago regarding her lockdown and rejection of a court order to stay off WSU campus, meaning probable imprisonment in Detroit until her court date six weeks away, Marino said:
“I am wholly aware of what I am doing and the potential consequences on my defiant actions. I enthusiastically assume whatever risk is necessary to tear down the walls of secrecy behind which abusers murder in peaceful anonymity. It’s time for activists to rise up and bring the war to the enemy’s doorsteps. It is time to disobey and defy unjust laws and stop tolerating the intolerable. It’s time to put words into action and our freedom and bodies on the line.”
When we are repressed and silenced, the only response is to escalate our struggle and to get louder. The Canine Killer wanted our attention and now he’s got it, along with more scrutiny and criticism of his heinous “research” than ever before.
